During the years when
UKCAC was Britain's biggest
comic convention many
artists contributed art to the
convention booklet  which
was later auctioned for
charity.


So, although some might
think the NEW MUTANTS
page was drawn for one of
the Marvel yearbooks, this
was a charity piece.
DR and Quinch were
very popular in the UK
and really easy to
draw, so I used the
con-sketches as an
opportunity to have
some fun...
This page features images of questionable taste
so do not proceed if you are easily offended or
faint of heart.
... And what is more fun than laughing at the idiotic antics of a
real jerk. These two pages are based on incidents, involving
the same guy, that occurred at  UKCAC and GLASCAC.
AKA was a small independent comic
shop in Glasgow that was owned and
run by a group of really great guys who
gave me a lot of support in my early
career.
Yes, another true incident. And if
you're looking in John, Mike
Conroy and I still have the
photographs.
When the British fanzine 'SHORTFUSE' was raised in a discussion on the
THY TE site,  I couldn't remember how many sketches I had contributed but I
checked my files and found these three.
I inked the Captain Britain myself and the DR and Quinch may well be my
first ever collaboration with Paul Neary.
The inked version of this image
was reprinted in the Modern
Masters book so I include the
pencils here.
